Julie Ziglar Norman shared the Get Motivated platform with her legendary father, motivational icon Zig Ziglar, for several years before becoming the dynamic, disarming and refreshingly transparent inspirational speaker and author she is today. She is comfortable speaking to a small group of 25 or a venue of 25,000. Her unique experience of being raised by the motivators’ motivator has given her a perspective on life and work that keeps her audiences laughing, crying and taking notes.Continuing her father’s Legacy of Encouragement is an honor and a privilege that Julie never expected or sought but her willingness to accept the challenge is inspiring audiences in America and abroad. Her vibrant style of delivery, her honest and transparent assessment of life, and her willingness to share intimate details of personal failures, as well as personal triumphs, has made her a popular crowd favorite.
Julie was her father’s editor for almost 20 years and is a winner of the coveted
Guideposts Writers Workshop contest. Her background in sales, business
management, and the service industry allows Julie to share principles, tools and concepts that foundationally change and improve a company’s bottom line potential. Her life experience as the poster child for bad choices enables her to minister to women seeking to trade a life peppered with guilt and shame, addiction, failure, fear, regret and anger for a life filled with love, joy and peace! Her latest book Growing Up Ziglar: A Daughter’s Broken Path from Heartache to Hope, was released by Guideposts Publishers in May of 2012.
Julie lives in the sleepy little town of Alvord, Texas with her beloved husband of 29 years, Jim Norman. They have four wonderful children, twelve amazing grandchildren, one precious great-grandson, three rescued cats, four rescued dogs and three on purpose horses.
"The work that we do does not define us but our attitude towards that work will."
